Can someone PLEASE tell me what is the appeal of CATS the musical? How did this run for 21 years in the West End? Seriously. How.
its good for kids I saw it when young and loved the songs and the story
i have seen it once and i couldn't understand it, and it was really long x
I really don't know!! I'm wondering myself
seriously when u get a good answer please retweet! Have had the same question for years!
how's France ? Unfortunately I can't be in Beziers this week end :( Enjoy our beautiful country! Love xo
there are a lot of old ladies with obsessions with cats in and around the london area
its so bad, i went to go see it and nearly walked out haha
incredible music? Andrew L Webber? Imagination?
hahaha No idea. I just laugh anytime I hear the song Mr. Mistoffelees . And it's a tad creepy imo. Lol
- Completely agree! I am a lover of musicals and I just dont get it! No storyline what-so-ever - I was bored!
THANK GOD! I thought I was the only one who felt this way...
I personally just thought it was cool to see people embody a cat. I'm certainly not that limber! And beautiful costumes!
Somewhere in Italy
You should ask Maxwell Sheffield. lol
I used to love that show! Although I was about 10 when I saw it...
never seen it.. but I'm guessing from your post I'm not missing anything right?
yeah I am really not sure either. I was wondering the same thing the other day. There are so many other moving shows.
You're so funny! I never saw that show, but I read that is a very boring musical. It's about cats! What's funny about that?
Idk. I'd see it if you were in it. Btw with #OTH done, its time you joined a musical!
On Top of the World
Pretty sure Dogs the musical would've been more appealing, but that's just me.
up, up & away.
your totally right, i fall asleep every time i hear the music. how do people stay awake watching the show?
Je n'ai jamais vu cette comédie, mais il y à beaucoup de gens qui sont obsedé par les chats.
Perth, Western Australia
hahaahahaha that's so true joy!
I've never seen this comedy, but there are many people who are obsessed by cats.
Kal- ee- forn- ie- ay.
Unlike OTH, Cats needs to go. By the way, i'm going to slip into depression once OTH ends
You don't like it? It was the first musical I've ever seen. And I can't remember. So I agree with you.
Are you enjoying your road trip in France ? What do you do with your days? :) Much love xoxo
so I should not see that i guess? lol
because with the proper buzz anything can run on longer than it should be allowed...just ask Ke$ha.
I've never seen it, but people absolutely love it. I'm not sure what the appeal is.
the burgh of edin.
the threat of cats forming thumbs grew. YouTube cats with thumbs and you'll see why it makes sense :)
I don't know! I agree with you! I wish we could get more of books turned into musicals!
So, what is your favorite musical ? :)
My sister is deathly afraid of this musical. She hates the mean cat.
Los Angeles, CA
my parents took me to this when I was like 10 and to this day the music still scares me
Underneath a palm tree
Why do you hate it? Have you seen it? It's about..........CATS, I think. LOL
I'm glad I'm not alone on that one.A lot of alone living woman (no offense to all of those) have cats to keep them company.
She lives on Kaciter.
I never saw it...I'm allergic, hehe!
Whitemarsh Island, GA
Lol. The stereotype of old ladies living alone in a house full of cats comes to mind...
I love your music soo much!! Now tht #oth is over :( are u gonna bring out new stuff?!!!
Andrew Lloyd Webber's name. & it was pushed by tour groups. ;)
its the Lloyd Webber appeal. whatever he composes become biblical #fact OH! and we are total cat people in the UK
Ann Arbor, MI
because there are a LOT of crazy cat ladies on this planet.
I've never seen it... But it just looks odd! Haha. Like is there any real story line to it?
I have no clue. Only one decent song in the whole thing! If they had used litter boxes on stage I would've been impressed.
My family once rented a copy on video and I fell asleep watching it. They say it's a classic. Classically awful, maybe.
AMEN! Cats creep me out to begin with...
my uncle is obsessed with Cats. He's always trying to put on the soundtrack at family parties.
As a Born and Bred New Yorker, it is a question that I have asked myself a many of times. #CatsTheMusical = #Nightmares
ha, you think that's bad, my drama class in school is re-enacting a scene from CATS in our school play…
its a UK thing were weird deal with it! :) x
anywhere but reality
its the amazing singing and choreography for me! But i can see how a musical about cats can turn some people off ;P
my guess is you're a dog person? ;-)
I seen it when I was about 4 and it scared the life out of me...I still have nightmares 20 years later #badmusical
something about the costumes maybe? I've often wondered the same thing.
are you in the UK?!! Please say you are/ you'll come while you're in Europe sushdxsud its my dream to meet you!
I have no clue but think it inspired all the crazy people to buy alot of cats lol x
haha me & a friend were just talking about this in my anatomy class yesterday, weird how many people think the same thing!
It's humans dressed as Cats who sing and dance like real people. What's not to love? ...
I saw it 21years ago, didn't understand it then & don't understand it now! Lol
:O it's so good! First musical I ever saw! I love that show.
without a doubt one of the worst of all times! my mam bought it for me as my first DVD when I was younger, BORING!
in VA, like the username says
I have wondered that for years.
Cats is a good dance show but as a Broadway musical it has 2 good songs and is completely overrated
Small Town in TN
Cats is such a terrible musical... There ia no point to it at all and lets face it, it is just creepy.
Wide Sweet NW
Boo I loved CATS! I actually saw it twice. I guess it went beyond the fact that they were cats.
MEMORYYYYYY ALL ALONE IN THE MOOOOONLIIIIIGHT~~ #deargod
its not just a story about cats, it's about the young and old and stereotypes of different social groups, it's amazing!
Don't even know what it's about.... Is it bad ? Haaha
I'm seeing CATS this Sunday for the first time. Not really looking forward to it. Sounds boring.
Hum...because cats have 7 lives...?
Saint John, NB
I adore Cats. Perhaps the appeal is greater when u r in the production and someone is making u a custom cat suit?
wow!thats great musical thinking especially to the people who are cat lovers..very exciting & are enjoyed to watch..:)
No idea... Sitting through it was positively painful. Starlight express was pretty bad too...x
its rubbish int it !! Worst 2 hours of my life !!
it's one of my favorites! The dancing is incredible, and I love the dark mystery it has. Worth 21 years...idk about that ;)
I loved Cats! To be honest I was like 8 and dont remember what it was about but I remember being entranced by the acting.
you need to see Cats..... To understand! It's amazing..... ;)
it's just a way for crazy cat ladies to start their obsession early on!
That's the only broadway show through which I slept most of the time & the parts I actually saw really freaked me out.
I've seen it twice, and I still don't understand what's going on at all.
I didn't get it when I saw it. Thought it sucked
I'm with you on that!! I didn't think it was that good!
When you find out, please let me know. I just do not understand it at all!
idk but its gotta be better than legally blonde the musical!
Andrew Lloyd Webber+Elaine Paige=need we say more? (multiply that by being non-adventure seekers at the theatre)=answer!x
